Young, Restless, Reformed

You may have heard of the fairly new book by Collin Hansen:

Young, Restless, Reformed: A Journalist’s Journey with the New Calvinists, written by Collin Hansen (Crossway, 2008; 160 pp, paperback, ISBN 978-1-58134-940-5)

Not having read the book, I found the Banner of Truth Trust review by Erroll Hulse very intriguing. It appears to me that Mr. Hulse not only gives a condensed description of Hansen's book, but also adds additional insight.

It was beneficial for me to read this review as an encouragement and a refreshing of the providential outworking of the Doctrines of Grace within America and England over the past 100 years or so.

You can read the full article, here.

Errol Hulse closes his article with D. A. Carson's endorsement of Hansen's book, I'll do the same as Carson's words speak to me with timely admonishment.
"This is not the time for Reformed triumphalism. It is time for quiet gratitude to God and earnest intercessory prayer, with tears, that what has begun will flourish beyond all human expectation."
